Disney Interactive has released a trailer and new info on Marvel Battlegrounds, an upcoming Play Set for Disney Infinity 3.0. Marvel Battlegrounds will feature four-player gameplay, which has never existed in a Disney Infinity game before. It will also be compatible with every Marvel figure released to date, giving it the most figures of any Play Set.
Here’s what Disney Interactive has to say about the game’s brand-new plot:
“In the original storyline, Ultron teams up with Loki in an effort to steal Asgard’s immensely powerful Infinity Stone. To accomplish this, Ultron and Loki create robotic replicas of the famed Marvel Super Heroes and turn them against each other in an effort to distract them while they commit their crime. The Marvel Super Heroes duplicates battle each other in iconic environments such as a wrecked Brooklyn train yard, Wakanda and S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Lunar Base, culminating in a universe-shaking battle against Ultron.”
If you are up-to-date with your Marvel movies, you may spot some familiar scenes in the Play Set’s trailer (above), including Captain America kicking up his shield in an elevator of knocked-out cronies (as in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Iron Man in his Hulkbuster suit facing off against The Hulk (as in Avengers: Age of Ultron).
Battlegrounds will come bundled with three new figures: Hulkbuster, Ultron, and a new version of the Captain America figure. Additional figures will be announced soon.
Gameplay-wise, the Play Set is described as an “arcade brawler” in the official press release.
“The four-player arena style combat gameplay is a perfect way for friends and families to come together and play in head-to-head battles with some of their favorite Marvel characters,” said John Blackburn, SVP & GM of Disney Infinity.
Marvel Battlegrounds is coming in 2016. Disney Infinity 3.0 came out in August. You can see our full review right here.
